  Patagonia Stretch Microburst Pants Review By the Everest GearGal


The Patagonia Stretch Microbust Pant is designed to be a lightweight, packable, durable, waterproof, breathable shell pant with stretch. In other words, a go anywhere does anything no nonsense pant weighing just 17oz. Like the sound of that, it gets better.

The interior surface has texture channels that pull moisture away from the skin, they also protect the waterproof barrier from abrasion and it allows the garment to slide easily over base layers. The pants are made using 3oz, 40 denier matte ripstop nylon with an H2No® HB (highly breathable) barrier. Complete with a DWR, durable water repellent finish. All the seams are sealed using skinny tape that is light, soft and compressible.

Durability is not an issue due to the reinforced stretch panels in the seat and knees also allowing for more enhanced movement.  These pants also feature non-stretch reinforced edge guards, full-length coated water resistant two way side zips and a zipper thigh pocket. The men’s version has removable; locking snap closure at the waist, two-way zip fly. Both have elastic shockcord and two loops at the cuff for attaching an under-the-heel-cord.

You can’t go wrong when buying Patagonia. The quality is outstanding and the company’s strong commitment to the environment means your money is well spent. Just make sure you are getting the features you desire. The Microbust pants are multi purpose, from walking the dog in a winter storm, to long distance backpacking and mountaineering, they offer full function at a lightweight.
